prolonged wars. governor romney wants to take us back to those policies, a foreign policy that's wrong and reckless, economic policies that won't create jobs, won't reduce our deficit, but will make sure that folks at the very top don't have to play by the same rules you do. i have a different vision for america. i want to build on our strengths, i put forward a plan to make sure we're bringing manufacturing jobs back to our shores by rewarding companies and small businesses that are investing here not overseas. i want to make sure we got the best education system in the world. and we're retaining our workers for the jobs of tomorrow. i want to control our own energy. by developing oil and natural gas, but also the energy sources of the future. yes, owe want to reduce our deficit by cutting spending we don't need, but also by asking the wealthy to do a little bit more, so we can invest in things like research and technology that are the key to a 21st century economy. as commander in chief, i will maintain the strongest military in the world, keep faith with our troops and go af
romney appeared to walk back nearly every foreign policy position he's ever taken and instead, make nice with president obama. right out of the gate moderator bob schieffer teed up a question on perhaps the biggest vulnerability the handling of the attack in benghazi. instead of continuing the criticism romney has kept up since the first 24 hours of the incident he pivoted to mali. >> we see in libya an attack, apparently by i had think we know now by terrorists of some kind against our people there, four people dead, our hearts and minds goes to them. mali has been taken over by al qae qaeda-type videos. >> the pattern would continue on nearly every major issue romney stood with the president. >> we're going to have to recognize that we have to do as the president has done. i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden and going after the leadership in al qaeda. would you have stuck with mubarak? >> no. i believe as the president indicated and said at the time i supported his action there. >> i don't want to have our military involved in syria. >> what you heard governor romney said

to answer a question. >> tonight, barack obama and mitt romney. in their final debate. the challenger, showing more confidence. >> you'll get your chance in a moment. i'm still speaking. >> the president showing more fig. >> i don't look at my pension. it's not as big as yours. >> this time, they'll clash our global threats. >> we'll make sure your military's so strong, no one would ever think of testing america. >> you like to talk tough. but what i know is al-qaeda's on the run and osama bin laden is no more. >> now, cnn's coverage of mitt romney and barack obama. battling for the job of commander in chief. >> i'm asking for your help to finish the job. >> i need you to go out there and find people that will come join our cause. >> the race is close. the election is near and america's future is up for debate. >>> this is lynn university in boca raton, florida, the site of tonight's debate. on this stage, president barack obama and governor mitt romney, they will face off for the last time before the november 6th election. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and aroun
problems. we saw that in libya. now many, including governor romney, believe that president obama's foreign policy has weakened america and emboldened our enemies. romney says iran, egypt and taliban and others no longer fear us therefore americans are in far greater danger than they were when president bush was in power. in short, governor romney believes in the big stick when necessary. that is crux of tonight's debate. whether america is in an exceptional country that has a moral right to lead the world, or whether we are a country no more entitled than anyone else. more romney is a huge advantages because of the libya business. i am sick and tired of hearing about it. president obama owes the american people, we the people, a press conference. he owes it to us to explain what the hell happened over there and why security was not what it should have been. this i don't want to hear any more excuses. i don't want to see any more finger pointing. i want to know the facts from the president's own mouth. more obama is in charge of foreign policy. again he must hold a press conference and expl

more dangerous. romney, well, clearly he's in debt to the hawks, the neoconservatives who write the stuff we heard last night, this talk of accusing the president of iran of genocide for the things he said about israel. it's purely political stuff. that and what he said about russia being our number one enemy in the world today. all this old cold war stuff. what's beneath it? who knows. what we do know is he feels the need to wear that neocon suit. will he rip it off if elected? why would anyone think that? he spoke about wanting a peaceful planet. talk about learning a dance for the occasion. john heilemann and ron reagan join us. mitt has a tendency to assume whatever political profile he thought would best help him win. in 2007 facing a relatively moderate john mccain and rudy giuliani, he tacked to the hard right. everything could always be tweaked, reshaped, fixed, addressed said one former aide describing his outlook. saying it was foreign to him on policy issues that core principles mattered, that somebody would go back and say, well, three years ago you said this. as the

" this morning, a more forceful president obama, a more measured mitt romney. last night's foreign policy debate here in florida, right here, in fact, is in the books now. and when it was over, a cnn/orc poll of debate watchers favored the president over mr. romney, 48% to 40%. let's get right to senior congressional correspondent dana bash who was watching that debate. good morning. >> good morning. look, we know this entire election year debates have really mattered. but this one was a little bit tricky because it's about foreign policy. that's not high on the priority list for voters. so each candidate really tried to make it a test of leadership. especially the president. >> reporter: mitt romney came wanting voters to see him as commander in chief. the commander in chief came determined to make sure that didn't happen. >> i know you haven't been in a position to actually execute foreign policy. but, every time you've offered an opinion, you've been wrong. >> reporter: time and time again the president's harsh criticism dripped with sarcasm. >> a few months ago when you were asked what's the
issues, as governor romney has. >> the president had created this false image of mitt romney in the minds of some voters that was completely knocked down in that first debate. and i think now what's becoming apparent in these debates is that the president has no plan for the next four years. he's failed to outline any sort of ideas how he'll govern the country in his words forward over the next four years. and that's why these debates have mattered more than ever. tomorrow is his last chance to tell us what he's going to do over the next four years. >> and good morning. it is monday, october 22nd. and folks here in boca have been up since 2:00 in the morning. there are 15 days to go until election day, and we're live from racks downtown eatery, where everyone is here in boca raton, florida, just miles away from lynn university where the final presidential debate will take place tonight. welcome, everyone. it's good to have you here. we have a great crowd here. >> it's unbelievable. >> can you believe this? >> great crowd in here. they're all packed out there. >> they're wide awake. >> mik
. it jumped to senator john mccain first. what do you expect out of this and romney tonight? what do you expect out of obama? mccain said romney should make it clear he is not interested in fighting every fight and he has a policy of strength, peace through strength. as far as the president's concerned, let me just finish, as far as the president is concerned he said he thinks that president obama has been less than transparent with the american people. i bumped in to senator graham. he was vehement how important the debate was defining the foreign policiful he feels that obama's group is trying to redesign romney in a way he doesn't need to be defined on his own. a lot on the foreign policy debatech >> bob: i have two questions. how many pictures did you have taken down there? did you run in to any democrats by chance? >> eric: i did. glad you asked. so far i have been tweeting pictures. candy crowley -- >> dana: how did that go? >> eric: i did. i bumped in to generaler the sak frish if obama campaign. what do you think president obama will say to define his person sol? she said he's al

( laughter ). >> he doesn't want to look like he's faking it and getting in the president's way. you saw john mccain raise the bar for the president. saying remember john mccain suspend-- he did it a couple of times, but one for hurricane gustav, a knocked a day off the republican convention to try to create a sense of "i'm president." one of the things important about taking the president off the campaign trail in terms of this early vote question, when want president ams can to town he's fly paper and gets people there to the events. what do the campaigns do? they turn those people into solterlz who will then go knock on dispersants on that final push at the end. they also turn them into votes in some states. i was in ohio this week. they were bussing them from the event to the early polling place where the, where the romney forces were watching to see how bi
